Good morning From Chief meteorologist Tony Petrarca
Finally a major turn around with our weather starts Today (Tuesday): Bright sun and significantly warmer temperatures.
We certainly have seen our share of cool temperatures and rainfall. April ended with 7.10” of rain, and so far the first 2 weeks of May are very wet with 4.83 inches of rain. That’s nearly 12 inches of water the last 6 weeks! In addition, this is the 5th wettest Meteorological spring (Mar 1- May 31) on record at TF Green. So, this is some well deserved sun!
A Nice start Tuesday Morning…
A rapid warm up Tuesday Afternoon
Tuesday High temps will top out well into the 70s
With more of a “land breeze” rather than a “sea breeze”, the beaches will warm up nicely, but the water is still chilly
Even warmer air by Wednesday
A shift in the jet steam northward will promote warmer and drier weather this week. Temperatures will reach a peak by Thursday with inland highs reaching the mid to upper 80s. Evenings and overnights will be much milder.
7 Day Futurecast
By the weekend we will start to see a cool down (but still pleasant) to more seasonable levels. Highs will top out in the upper 60s to low 70s Saturday and Sunday.
